The PSAT is offered three times a year. Registration for the PSAT is different than the SAT, in that the students have to register through their school. Since schools are all different, the registration process will vary from school to school. Not every school will offer the PSAT, so if that is the case with your school, it would be prudent to search around and find another school in your vacinity that offers the PSAT and register for it there.
- You can find out if your school administers the PSAT with the College Board school search tool. If it doesn’t, you can search your local area for schools that do.
- The school where you will be taking the PSAT should inform you of the October exam date, which may be on a weekday or a Saturday.
- You will need to sign up and pay for the PSAT according to your school’s method, which may cover part or all of the cost.
“Whatever the case, your school should offer clear instructions on how to complete your PSAT sign up. Schools typically hand out or email PSAT registration information to students in the early fall. If you are planning to take the PSAT at a different school, you’ll need to call that school or contact one of its counselors to inquire about the PSAT registration process and see whether the process differs for students who do not attend that school.”
